Dreams with Messages

 

    

      Two weeks ago I had a dream. I woke up after having it in the early morning, therefore it is considered a waking dream. Charles Filmore, Unity’s (unity.org) cofounder believed in the messages of waking dreams. Theoretically, your first dreams when you go to sleep are those that help you work out and let go of events from that  day.

     In the dream, I was the tractor that was pulling the trailer of a semi truck. I was  driving in the wrong direction, however. All the traffic had stopped on the highway and was waiting for me to turn around. They were patient. I saw a person in a night shirt that represented each car. Once I got turned around, I was then pulling the truck up  a flight of stairs and then I awoke.

     It was a pretty vivid message just like the  picture that I selected above. My initial feeling and thought was that I’m trying overcome the current challenges mostly by myself, once again. The cars on the highway, which represent those on the path of life with you, were supporting me as I turned my life around. The trailer obviously was the weight and baggage of my current challenge. The next part of the dream when I was pulling it up the stairs, I was making life more of a struggle than it needs to be. Stairs represent “one’s ascent or descent in relation to one’s life preogression or advancement.”1 I had gotten caught up on the gerbil wheel going around and around and forgetting to trust and have faith in God.

     Many people have and continue to be there to support me with their unconditional love,  patience and abundance. They have employed me, written me letters of reference and most of all just listened and accepted me for who I am with the gifts and talents that I have come to earth to give. Having compassion for oneself is not easy. Today as I get over yet another cold from the stress I created, I am choosing to have compassion for myself. I know I am doing the best that I can.

     Dreams have messages that are simple yet profound. It is Spirit’s way of getting your attention. As you interpret them, the key is how they felt to you and what resonates with in you. It’s helpful to keep a journal that you write them in. I incorporate them into the regular journal that I write in when I have something I want to remember.

     Remember to have compassion with yourself  in whatever is happening in your life. When you surrender and let Spirit give you the next step, It knows the how, things will shift for the better in your life. Relax and have faith. Amen

New Year Note

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I will be posting on this blog at least once per month to ideally once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Feel free to check out my previous blogs.

Happy New Year,
Rev Airin

Birthing the Christ, Part I

     This blog has finally birthed. How perfect  to begin with the birth of Jesus which in Unity means birthing the Christ at a deeper level within us. The picture that is before you is one that I took of the view from the Blue Ridge mountains. It is only a small representation of the beauty of this Shenandoah Valley where I have the privilege of living. Likewise,  it shows some of that same Christ presence that is within us.  

      In Unity we translate the Bible and life, metaphysically. We look at the meaning beyond the words or situation that is going on before us. This gives us a practical application to use in living a spiritual life.  Always keep one thing in mind, however, as you have heard it said, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. There isn’t always a meaning to absolutely everything in that one can get stuck in over analyzing.  You just look at what jumps out at you in the present moment and what it might be teaching you. We look at symbols and metaphors for clues and trust the feelings that we experience.

     Unity’s cofounder and mentor to myself, Charles Fillmore, talked about birthing the Christ in his Christmas sermon on Sunday, December 22, 1912.                                                                                                                                                                                 

“The essential thing is to know and understand that the real child of God is formed in your soul. It exists there and is now being manifest. Make yourself a present of that thought; and make it an everyday thought. Let Christmas be every day. Enter into the Christ Mind and see Christ in you.

I know a man who has grown wonderfully in spiritual understanding and spiritual power, and he told me once that he made it a daily practice to see Christ in his heart. He saw the Christ as a picture, as a life, and he said he talked mentally to that Christ portrait at his heart’s center; and he said a light has gradually sprung up within me that lights my way. I am a changed man from mentally seeing Christ in me, instead of looking at the Christ outside, looking at a historical Christ, thinking about the man as separate from me. ‘I am the Christ of God’, is the dominant appellation of that man to himself, and he has demonstrated it. And he is only one of thousands who have brought that Christ principle home to everyday life, who are bringing forth in themselves the Christ of God, who are forming Christ in them.”

      Here is an example that a change in our life begins with our consciousness. We can birth whatever we want. As you probably know, the life that you are currently living was birthed from a level of your consciousness. We create our consciousness with our thoughts, one word at a time, one sentence at a time. Life is consciousness and relationships. The consciousness we show up in dictates the relationship we will have in that very moment with an idea, a person or a situation.

     Jesus said we are the light of the world and not to hide it under a bushel. When we shine our light, we are expressing the Christ from within our being. I invite you this week, to let Christ begin to come into your consciousness, open and receptive, coming as a child in your own unique way. Stay tuned for Part II.

You are welcome to leave a comment or question, or addition if you feel so inclined. Thanks in advance for your contributing consciousness to this one that has just birthed.
